It sounded really interesting until the formatting, unnecessary break lines and a book that just stops. Thanks for the review.
It has potential; it just needs some work to get there. Thanks for your comment.

The premise is certainly interesting, but a story without good ending does not attract me much. Thanks for the honest review!
I can certainly understand that. Thanks for your comment.

I hope the author will take your advice about the editing issues. This is an intriguing story line that would appeal to boys to deepen their interest in reading. Great review!

I hope so, too! I like the concept; it just needs a little bit of help. Thanks for your comment.

Latest Review: Inspirience: Meditation Unbound by Richard L Haight

I think that this is the first time I’ve heard about a book that is both sci-fi and coming of age. It sounds interesting, although it would be so disappointing to trudge through that length of a book with a start-stop flow just to reach a bad ending.

Yes, Jeremiah is forced to grow up a little more quickly than he would like due to his new gift. There were enjoyable moments, but the book needs a little more work. Thanks for commenting.

Definitely sounds like an interesting idea, though I wonder why his father gave him this technology (certainly answered in the book), but the formatting issues and the lack of a clear ending make it sound like something I will leave be for now.

How the technology came to be and why his father left it for him are answered in the book. I do wish that the ending had been a bit different, though. Thanks for your comment.
